Watford continued to show their vast improvement this season with a comprehensive 4-1 win over Fulham at Vicarage Road.
The Hornets secured the perfect result ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup showdown with Wolves at Wembley.
Goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure, Will Hughes, Troy Deeney, and Kiko Femenia ensured a rout and relegated the Cottagers back to the Championship.
Javi Gracia’s team have been a joy to watch this season.
They finished 14th last season and it was intriguing before a ball was kicked to see what sort of campaign they would have this time around.
They currently sit eighth and are firmly in the hunt for a European place.
Doucoure’s form has caught the eye more than most.
His goal in last night’s win was his fifth of the season and kicked things off for Watford.
Sky Sports reported back in January that the midfielder was drawing attention from PSG.
Their interest was never followed up and the Frenchman has kicked-on during the second half of the campaign.
The man-mountain of a midfield player doesn’t seem unhappy with the Hertfordshire-based club.
Watford supporters were delighted with his performance and took to commenting to congratulate the midfielder.
We rounded up the best tweets in response to Doucoure.
Love you Abdoulaye 🥰
